A Stable Careers Programme
Every school and college should have an embedded programme of career education and guidance that is known and understood by pupils, parents, teachers, governors and employers.
OBA’s careers programme has strong backing from the Principal, Senior Leaders and The Governing Body. It is embedded into the structures of the Academy and is regularly being reviewed and developed to meet the needs of students. The annual careers plan includes priorities from the overall Academy Development Plan. This makes it easier to evaluate the achievements of the programme at the end of each year. Students, parents, teachers and employers provide evaluative feedback on their participation in activities via questionnaires and this is used to inform decisions about the future development of the programme and feeds into the whole-school process of evaluation.
